Sodo Park Wedding: Nicole+David

Sodo Park Wedding: Nicole+David

They had their own versions of anticipation as they prepared for their wedding day…  Nicole laughing and hugging and dancing and singing with her mom and her bridesmaids, and David keeping more to himself with a slight smile that never left his face as he nervously fidgeted with his guitar pick.  As individuals, Nicole and David are extraordinary people – but when they’re together it’s like watching two pieces of a puzzle settling into their perfect fit – their love is palpable and simply joyful in a way that is impossible to put into words.  In fact, if I had to describe their day in one word, it would be JOY.  Joy as Nicole prepared for the day with her bridesmaids, joy when David saw her for the first time, joy when she reached the end of the aisle during the ceremony and the entire bridal party broke out into dancing, joy as they danced their way back up that aisle as husband and wife, joy when she sang him a surprise love song to kick off the reception and left everyone in tears, the list goes on and on.  And one of the things that struck us the most about Nicole and David’s wedding was their bridal party – they were one of the kindest, funniest, and most loving crews we’ve ever worked with – and that type of friendship doesn’t happen everyday…  Even looking back through these images today, our hearts are full of joy and thankfulness that we had the opportunity to play a small part in telling their love story.

Some of our favorite details from Nicole+David’s wedding were the impeccable styling and coordination by The Invisible Hostess, the gorgeous vintage furniture provided by Vintage Ambiance…and most importantly (!) – the donut centerpieces on the reception tables from Mighty O Donuts – which were by far the most useful and delicious centerpieces we’ve ever encountered:)  Days like theirs are simply hard to put into words.  So much emotion, love, and fun – so we’ll let the photos do the talking…

And…as you settle in to view the story of their day, we’ve got the perfect soundtrack for you – Nicole and her bridesmaids, in their limo on the way to Sodo Park, rehearsing the love song that she sang to David as a surprise at their reception.  Click to play…

 

And a big shout out to the awesome creative team that can together to ensure a perfect day…

Roche Harbor Wedding: Melinda+Casey

Roche Harbor Wedding: Rick+Anna Photography

Melinda+Casey.  These two.  It’s hard to put their wedding day into words.  A lot of laughter, gallons of happy tears shed, an incredible bridal party, a veil that was flown in on an emergency seaplane trip the morning of the wedding, some of the most beautiful details we’ve every photographed, a reality tv star groom, an incredible couple, a full reception room that sang along to the mother-son dance, chicken and waffles for a midnight snack…the day was, in short, perfect.  And we are so excited to share the photos with you this morning…

Everett Senior Portraits: Alexa, Class of 2015

Everett Senior Photographer: Rick+Anna Photography

These past couple of months we’ve had the privilege of working with some amazing Class of 2015 seniors, and we’re super excited to share some of our favorites from Alexa’s session with you today!  Alexa is a gorgeous soccer star, and we had a ton of fun on her Luxe Session exploring downtown Snohomish and the beach!  One of our favorite things about seniors is that each one brings their own unique style and personality…and it’s so fun to capture them for who they are at such an awesome time in their lives.  Alexa, thanks so much for an absolutely incredible shoot!  Love, R+A

Tacoma Engagement Photography: Rhonda+Decker

Tacoma Engagement Photographer: Rick+Anna Photography

If we had to describe Rhonda+Decker’s engagement session with one word, it would be joy.  I know for a fact that we’ve simply never laughed so much during a shoot (but then, we’ve never had a panda mask involved before either!), and these two are so deeply comfortable and happy together that they made our jobs incredibly easy.  We started the Tacoma Museum of Glass, and then hit the downtown area and finished up with a gorgeous sunset along the beach.  Rhonda+Decker, we can’t thank you enough for such an incredible evening.  Thanks for giving us stomachaches and sore cheeks from all of the laughing, thanks for making us feel like old friends, and thanks for sharing your beautiful love story with us.  We simply can’t wait to hang out with you two again and to photograph your wedding day!

And definitely can’t wait to work with the MG Davis Events team and Peter of Peak Digital Cinema to make their wedding day amazing!!

Pickering Barn Wedding: Kimi+Armand

Pickering Barn Wedding: Rick+Anna Photography

Although we were worried about rain in the days leading up the Kimi+Armand’s wedding, their day couldn’t have been more perfect.  Clear blue skies and a gorgeous and hot Pacific Northwest day brought together their friends and families at the gorgeous Pickering Barn in Issaquah.  This entire day was filled with so much joy – from the girls getting ready together in the morning (and pausing multiple times to hug Kimi and cry happy tears with her) – to the dancing in the barn that night…the smiles never left Kimi+Armand’s faces the entire day.  We absolutely loved all of their details, from Kimi’s incredible tulle wedding gown to the groomsmen’s shoes, everything was exquisitely planned and the day flowed perfectly thanks to the talent of Love Blooms Wedding and Event Design.  Kimi+Armand, we cannot thank you enough for the awesome privilege of photographing both your engagement and your gorgeous wedding day.  Your love for each other is a beautiful thing, and we’ve loved every single second that we’ve spent with you guys.  Thanks to you and your families for being so wonderful – we simply couldn’t be happier for you!  Love, R+A
